good compilation, but the Dubai and Shanghai pics are too outdated to be included here.

l'll go with this:
1. Shanghai (when SH tower will be build).
2. NY (when all World Trade Center towers will be finished).
3. HK (skyline and green hills ).
4. Chicago (unique skyscraper-architecture in USA).
5. Singapore (little but powerful skyline).

Tokyo is only a mega city with so many skyscrapers in many different places, i do not see how Tokyo has the best skyline in the world, world's top 5 skylines should be -

1.New York
2.Hong Kong
3.Chicago
4.Shanghai
5.Tokyo/Toronto/Dubai/Sydney/Singapore/Los Angeles/London/Frankfurt/Paris/More...

I do not think anything right place at the same level to mega Tokyo cops to the newly structured in Dubai, as the latter seems like a real city because it offers no urbanity and city services, in terms of skyline few years will be the best, but now nothing to do.

For me it's between Chi, NY and HK, and I like to rate skylines based on height, density, natural setting and variety of architectural styles. Chicago has the most impressive display of height with their four supertalls, especially considering how they're laid out. HK has the most beautiful natural setting though, while the density of NY is unmatched, and along with Chi has an unbelievable mix of architectural styles.

I kind of wish I could take me vote back in the other thread because I think in 2010, it's Chicago. I do wish they had more fillers of 600 feet or so, but next year when WTC 1 & 4 and hopefully Carneige 57, start making an impact then NY will be back to #1.

Tokyo is an interesting candidate. For me, all it needs is 3-4 strategically placed super talls to catapult it into the same league as the big boys. It has a huge inventory of 100-300 metre buildings.
